Donald & Peta – Samba

Oh, I don’t envy Donald following William’s samba! Well, he started his differently by ripping of Peta’s conservative costume for one that was short and full of fringe. This seemed more conservative than William’s samba. It was fun, but not super sexy. Donald seemed to be really comfortable during this dance.

Len said it was a little hesitant at times, but he liked it. Bruno said Donald’s dance was dangerous because it was out of the realm of Brazil, but Donald did it his own way beautifully. Carrie Ann smiled. She thought it was A+ game.

SCORE: 29 (Len gave it a 9)

Maria & Derek – Jive

I don’t know why they did so much monkeying around with the table (are you happy, ABC? I sound like a cranky old Brit!). They did a lot of shimmying and slow movements. I started shouting at my TV for them to start kicking! If this was freestyle, I’d be OK with it. But this girl can dance. I wanted a REAL jive. I feel like I was robbed!

Bruno said it was reinvented and quirky. He said it worked beautifully. Carrie Ann said Maria is a winner. She was blown away. Len said it was clever. He liked the rhythm. He said it wasn’t traditional, but felt right. Len said she went wrong with some of the footwork, but he liked it.

SCORE: 29 (Len gave it a 9)

Tuesday, Carrie Underwood, Alanis Morisette, Julianne Hough and Mary J. Blige will perform. We’ll also get some insight into the next season (I heard they’re finally taking my advice and bringing back some of the “should have/could have wons.” Also, one couple is going home (sadly, I think it could be Katherine).
